The short and long of it

New Zealand D-Photo - - BEST TECH | TRAVEL- PHOTOGRAPHY GUIDE -

Fea­tur­ing a light­weight alu­minium con­struc­tion, the BeFree Color checks in at a feath­er­weight 1.4kg, but main­tains dura­bil­ity and rigid­ity de­spite its col­lapsi­ble frame.

In­cluded with the tri­pod is a sin­gle-ac­tion ball head that al­lows the en­tire kit to sup­port up to al­most 4kg — enough for many DSLRs, cam­corders, and mir­ror­less and com­pact cam­eras. The head uti­lizes a Man­frotto 200LT-PL quick-re­lease plate, which fea­tures a quar­ter-inch (6.35mm) screw com­pat­i­ble with most cam­eras.

Plus, with rub­ber feet that pro­vide a more se­cure grip on al­most any ter­rain and a bal­last hook for in­creased sta­bil­ity when you need it, the BeFree Color by Man­frotto (RRP $319.95) is the ul­ti­mate travel es­sen­tial.

The four-sec­tion in­verted-leg travel-style de­sign al­lows the tri­pod to com­pact down to just 40.9cm in length, mean­ing it can fit within a carry case for stor­age or trans­port, yet is ca­pa­ble of reach­ing heights com­fort­able for most shoot­ers. It can be set to any po­si­tion rang­ing be­tween its min­i­mum height of 34cm and max­i­mum of 144cm.
